Already with this 22 ammo shortage I have my friends trading me other ammo I want for boxes of mine and even though I try to be fair with them on equal value, I am still coming out ahead. I saw the writing on the wall after 2008 and started buying a case or two of 22 ammo at a time instead of bricks while it was plentiful for several years after that and before the 2012 fiasco.
Silver would be a better bet.
I read somewhere online of a guy who made some gold bullets in the 80s (when gold wasn't as high). They were apparently a PITA, and gold just crumbles when it impacts.

That is interesting. The been there done that already happened. Well silver is less expensive to get, and if the Lone Ranger is correct they should shoot more accurately. Besides, if werewolves come around...... LOL

Silver does not make a good bullet. Too hard, too light. And yes, this is a zombie thread.


DIE ZOMBIE!!!!
